You are receiving this email because you have registered your child for my Online English Language Arts 2-3 class this semester! If you have not already paid the tuition, please do so ASAP through the NWCS Admin or else you will be dropped from the class.
If you don't already have the class workbook, purchase one ASAP! You will need one! If you were in my class last semester (either Gifted Exploration 2 or this class) you should already have one. We covered Unit 1 of the workbook last semester. Here is a link to order it on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Steck-Vaughn-Core-Skills-Language-Arts/dp/0544267869/ref=sr_1_24?ie=UTF8&qid=1536472180&sr=8-24&keywords=language+arts+grade+3+workbook
The entire class will be done through TeacherEase.com this semester. We will begin TODAY! A link to your student's own account is provided below:
Please use the link below to setup your TeacherEase account:
Feel free to login and browse the site (please allow some time for me to enter useful information). If you ever have any questions, feel free to contact me.
Once you and your student feel ready to begin the course, find the grades button on the lefthand side of the parent portal home page. All the assignments for this semester are already there! For this class, this semester will start today and end on 5/31/2020. The end date is flexible based on overall student progress. There is at least one assignment everyday. Feel free to work through the course with your student at your own pace or by following the due dates. The order in which you complete the assignments does not matter. All assignments MUST be turned in by the end date or else a 0 will be assigned to all the missing work. Here is how the course will work:
-There is one page assigned in the workbook EVERYDAY. You will grade your own work using the answer key in the back of the workbook and report to me how many problems you got wrong by commenting on the assignment in TeacherEase. You can do this by clicking on the assignment. I will try to enter your score asap.
-TUESDAYS and THURSDAYS are reading days. I will upload reading comprehension worksheets on those days of the week for your student to complete. You can access them and turn them in by clicking on the assignment. Once you turn them in, I will try to grade them asap.
-SATURDAYS are writing days. There will be assigned pages in your workbook on Saturdays that relate to writing. You will be required to take pictures or scan your work to upload when done so that I can grade them asap.
-There is one mid term exam and one final exam. Directions are in TeacherEase once you get there.
-There is no video call component for this class. It is a rather a self paced curriculum. I am here if you ever have any questions related to the coursework or TeacherEase troubleshooting. If a video call is ever needed, we can arrange one from there.
-Communication can be done with me through TeacherEase, email, or WeChat. -If needed, I will upload notes and/or other handouts for you to access.
-There may be online discussions related to the coursework if needed.
I am still finalizing the course and uploading files on TeacherEase but the first few assignments are ready to go! Feel free to begin the course with your student. I would recommend starting with the Syllabus & Schedule Agreement, Introductory Essay, and Unit 1 Test. The Unit 1 Test is basically a review test for first semester.
Please stay healthy and I look forward to working with you all this semester!
